Weaknesses: Makes ALL OTHER guns seem unimpressive.
Review: Anybody who has ever owned or shot a Chipley Custom Machine product as asked themselves, "Where do I begin?" when writing a review of CCM stuff. Here it goes...

The first CCM product I purchased was a Series 5 pump gun. I was looking for a good pump and initially set out after a Sterling STP. After talking to some serious pumpgunners (Dan at BunkerBoyz) I found out that Sterlings were good, CCM's were the Holy Grail of pump guns (this is not an exageration). My only concern was the pricetag. The cost of a Sterling STP was between $200 and $250. This was kind of a lot for someone who's only pump experience was old Benjamin Sheridan guns (fine guns indeed, still not a Chipley). The Series 5 pump weighed in at $365. This was more than I wanted to spend, but figured I could probably get my money out of it if I didn't like it. I found a Chipley dealer on the internet (they are also factory direct) and ordered two up, one for me and one for my best friend, also a paintball enthusiast.

While waiting for the guns I must say I was skeptical, but enthusiastic. This was supposed to be a hot stuff Sniper. My concern was this, "How much better than a Sniper could it be? Did it justify the cost?". Then the package showed up. I had the gun shipped to the paintball store my friends and I worked in so that we could chrono it and set it up without any problems or part constraints.

I opened the box and looked at this absolutely jet black cocker clone with this giant pump on the front of it and a wierd linkage connecting the pump arm to the triggerframe (autotrigger). I picked up the gun and was immediately impressed with the weight. Super light and well balanced. I turned the gun toward the ceiling so as to keep the muzzle in a safe direction and I kid you not, the gun cocked itself. I almost made a mess in my pants. The entire store full of seasoned paintball players were in complete awe. The only word uttered was, "Wow!". Any review or statement as to the smoothness of the action on this marker is shotty at best and does not do it justice. Do not confuse "smooth" with "sloppy." There is nothing sloppy about Chipley guns. They are the most precise piece of equipment you will ever see or experience. Since the purchase of my first Series 5's, I've bought seven other CCM guns, and sold everything else I owned. I play pump gun tourneys almost exclusively and have turned countless people into CCM owners and believers.

I took this gun out and shot it with the stock barrel, Smart Parts Freak Kit, and standard All American. No joke, the factory aluminum 12 inch barrel (with sizers) outshot both Smart Parts barrels. The only barrel that has outdone the factory barrel is the CCM carbon fiber barrel kit. It is now all I play with. Needless to say the accuracy on this gun is unreal. By far the most accurate paintball gun I've ever shot. The consistency at the chrono with a broken in factory CCM regulator is +/- 3 feet per second.

I've not had one problem with this gun. Its parts and design are backed by the best lifetime warranty in the sport. My only warranty issue was a used gun I bought off eBay didn't work at all when I got it. Rather than mess with it, I just sent the gun back to the factory and Rod Thompson rebuilt the entire thing with all new internals, and a new ram. The entire rebuild cost me the seven dollars to ship it to them. They rebuilt it and paid to send it back. Their customer service is the best.

I could rant and rave about CCM's guns all night, not just the Series 5. My Series 6 showed up at the door yesterday and I'll be reviewing that in a few weeks. Go buy one and check it out for yourself. You will believe.
Conclusion: The best guns on the planet, because CCM is the best company on the planet. You'll see! I give it a ten because I can't give it any higher.
